Are hot showers bad for your health?
Hot shower daily.......like really really hot.
Well, I think not, based on my opinion and what doctors whom I knew personally will say, hot shower relaxes you and promotes good circulation of blood.
Not when you have to go to work in the middle of the night, might just wake you up enough to make that drive to work. I've had plenty of doctors suggest doing physical therapy in the shower, the hot water losens up the muscles and improves circulation. Heat is only really bad if the problem is swelling, heat will only make that worse. Do not put on a analgesic and get in the shower, the warm water opens the pores and intensifies the effect, can you say ouch( especially a groin pull)
Hot showers cannot be harmful unless they actually cause burns to the skin. In which case, you should turn down the temperature!
When you step into your hot shower, you are inadvertently exposing your body to a slew of toxins that can damage your health, inside and out.
These toxins stem from a chemical that is added to the water supply on purpose, ironically to kill bacteria. The chemical is chlorine, and it’s added to all public water supplies to kill disease-causing bacteria in the transport pipes and the water itself.
But while chlorine is a highly effective disinfectant, it, and its byproducts, can be devastating to your health.
There are numerous studies that link drinking chlorinated water to increased risks of cancer, birth defects, miscarriages, and more. But what you may not realize is that showering or bathing in chlorinated water can be just as dangerous as drinking it, and even more so.

We have been invited to a baby shower. Both men and women were invited. My husband is flabbergasted and says it is in bad taste (primarily because he doesn't want to go, I think). He says it is wrong.I say, why not? I'm actually relieved, since it probably means we won't have to play stupid parlor...

Should the U.S. Military allow men and woman to take showers together?It only makes sense now that Gay's and Lesbians can be open about there sexuality. Why not just create one facility for everyone to just have one big shower party. I wouldn't mind taking a shower with Jessica Alba or...

I love baths. Some people think baths are not as efficient as showers or they think of a bath as a water waster .I just published a hub about this issue. I would love to hear why you are on Team Bath or Team Shower.
